England’s Tommy Makinson after the win over New Zealand at Anfield

England coach Wayne Bennett has hit out at former Australia internationals Brad Fittler and Greg Alexander for their criticism of the selection of Tom Makinson as the Golden Boot winner.

Makinson capped a remarkable entry into the Test arena in 2018 with a hat-trick of tries in a man-of-the-match performance in England’s series-clinching win over New Zealand at Anfield last Sunday.

His eye-catching displays in three games against the Kiwis were recognised by the Rugby League International Federation on Wednesday, when he was presented with the Golden Boot, awarded this year for performances only in internationals.
